Asus ZenFone AR

Asus ZenFone AR looks Daydreamy

Lets talk about the Asus ZenFone AR, a phone that amazes many. The first ever first phone that lets you use Google Tango AR and Google Daydream VR. Tango lets you see more of your world. Just hold up your phone and watch as virtual objects and information appear on top of your surroundings and also allow us to measure the distance between the chair and the coffee table by overlaying line segments in real time on the phone’s display. While the Google Daydream takes you on incredible adventures in virtual reality.

Daydream View

The phone also has a faster Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor and 6 or 8GB of RAM and this allows more apps to be kept running at the same time. Faster speed to run games, allowing smooth gameplay and able to enjoy your time. Its screen is a 5.7-inch screen that’s just a bit taller than the iPhone 7 Plus and also with a “Tri-Cam” systems that combines motion, able to sense depth and a 23-megapixel camera. The camera can take 23-megapixel photos and 4K videos which is pretty impressive. 

Now lets talk about its appearance and materials. With a glass front and a soft leather back with a ugly-like rear camera which made the phone looks like something out of a mad scientist’s laboratory.

With a affordable price of  $599 seems worthy and a much better offer than a Apple phone in my opinion.With a raised home button that doubles as a fingerprint sensor makes it look like a more modern, advance  andriod phone.

In my opinion, purchasing the Asus ZenFone AR is a good choice out of all phones. Although the Asus ZenFone AR  is lightly skinned with the version of Android Nougat 7.0, setting up Tango and Daydream will be easy and straightforward taking only a few minutes.

Firstly, it has a big physical size of 18.4 inches and a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. This tablet also has a pixel density of 120 ppi. It has a high screen-to-body ratio of 75.70%. There is also a light sensor on this tablet. The camera of this tablet is 2.1 megapixels.

Secondly, it has an octa-core processor hence the tablet can load applications quite quickly. Additionally, it has a system memory of 2048 MB RAM and a built-in storage of 64 GB. The battery capacity of this tablet is 5700 mAh. The advantages of this tablet is that it has a high screen-to-body ratio (75.7 %) and a fast mobile data support (4G). The disadvantages of this tablet is that it has an extremely heavy weight and there is no rear camera.

Lastly, people who are interested in this product must be wondering about its price. Now, I shall list down the prices. The device is now up for shipping and currently offers 32 GB and 128 GB Wi-Fi options for $799 and $949 respectively. While the 128 GB Wi-Fi + Cellular model will cost you $1,079. In my opinion, this is a great tablet if the weight is not too heavy and it should be light enough for people to carry it around without much effort. Comparing the advantages and disadvantages, I would say that this tablet should be given a rating of 7/10.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+

 

 

The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ is not just a larger version of the original Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. In fact, it is just a small upgrade from its smaller counterpart, it adds a shortcut menu to the edge screen for quickly opening apps, in addition to the existing menu for contacting your favorite people.

Sharing the exact same specifications of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5,  which includes a strong 16-megapixel camera, 4GB of RAM and an octa-core processor of Samsung’s own design (that means it has eight computing chips for completing tasks). Besides its snazzier design, though, the Edge+ lacks the Note 5’s signature stylus. That leaves potential buyers having to choose between the Edge+’s inviting curves or the Note 5’s scribble-friendly practicality.

As of now, the S6 Edge+ comes in gold, silver, black and white, though different regions may carry different colors. Prices vary by retailer and country, but this Edge+ will cost more than the Note 5 overall. The design of the Edge+ are as follows:5.7-inch display; 2,560×1,440 pixels (518 pixels per inch), metal and glass construction, 6.1 by 3 by 0.3 inches (154 by 76 by 6.9mm), weighs 5.4 ounces (153 grams).If the regular Edge’s curved screen and thin edges are familiar to you, you should know how the Edge+ looks like.

Unlike the other Galaxies, this one does not have a removeable battery or microSD card.The curves on the screen, unlike previous curved-screen Galaxies, are not merely ‘cosmetic’ but a function. A special display utilises the curves on the screen.Hence, it hides from view until you pull it out, so most of the time, you don’t see it. When you do want to summon the edge display (which you can now do from any screen, not just the home screen, as was the case with the original S6 Edge), you grab a slim onscreen tab that tastefully lies low on whichever side you put it, and swipe to reveal the full menu. The settings menu also lets you turn on a newsfeed, so you can see various alerts and news headlines in the sidebar as well as through the customary notifications tray up top. The benefit here: the edge screen’s longer window lets you see more text, without expanding the alert the way you would with the notifications shade.

In my opinion, this is basically a Note 5 with a slighty larger Edge cover with extra features. Worth the price of more than the original Edge? If you really need a new phone and or have the money, this probably will suit you. If not, I’d say skip this phone.
